Gurdeep Khullar, a native of India and current sociology professor at the University of Arkansas, Pine Bluff, has completed his new book “Indian Middle Ages”: a comprehensive overview of medieval Indian erotic literature.

Gurdeep writes, “Time magazine stated that Game of Thrones is the most popular show in the world. It took the viewers to a remote, unknown past through an atmosphere of a dream world which comes into being with the help of the creation of an illusion. The strange, supernatural, and extraordinary world of beauty, fear, awe, mystery, talisman, and gallantry is created. Since these events occur in a centuries-old world far away from modern times, the viewers can enjoy them and believe that once upon a time they really may have happened.

One hundred years ago, on the other side of the globe, some historical novelists and historical romancers in India created similar artworks in the Hindi language. These works contain almost exactly the same thematic characteristics by describing the life and activities of extremely voluptuous 'nawabs' and prostitutes. They depicted their luxurious and opulent lifestyle, full of vulgar sex, free desires, dreams, and yearnings along with talismans to create a unique environment and the feelings of thrill and awe.

This book is a humble effort to bring a sociological and philosophical perspective to these literary creations. It provides a lively and vibrant picture of various social and cultural traditions, customs, and superstitions of medieval Indian society. A glossary of Hindi and Sanskrit words is provided for the convenience of Western readers.”

Published by Page Publishing, Gurdeep Khullar’s research is an expressive and vibrant encounter with the medieval Indian literary unknown.

With references to physical works, descriptions of oral histories, and a multitude of historical references, this exploration of a literary movement is a truly unique experience.

Readers who wish to experience this intriguing work can purchase “Indian Middle Ages” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
